Superiority Contest

29th September 1788: Richard Humphries and Daniel Mendoza square up during their third meeting. Mendoza's victories over Humphries, considered the best heavyweight in England, would eventually see him crowned champion in 1791. Mendoza published 'The Art Of Boxing' in 1798, an early study of the sport's technical aspects. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
